With his combination of a quick first step and violent hands, the second-round pick of the New Orleans Saints didn’t find too many blockers he couldn’t solve or move out of the way. He met is match against Stanford. At left tackle, the Cardinal featured future Saints’ first-round Andrus Peat, who spent an afternoon last year keeping Kikaha at bay. Peat didn’t shut
